The Island
The Island | Olivia Levez
13 posts | 10 read | 11 to read
Frances is alone on a small island in the middle of the Indian ocean. She has to find water and food. She has to survive. And when she is there she also thinks about the past. The things that she did before. The things that made her a monster. Nothing is easy. Survival is hard and so is being honest about the past. Frances is a survivor however and with the help of the only other crash survivor she sees that the future is worth fighting for. A gripping and thoughtful story about a girl who didnt ask to be the person she is but is also determined to make herself the person she wants to be.

This book will break your heart and make you laugh all on the same page. Such fight and fierceness in the main character Fran. I sure hope this author keeps writing...couldn't put this book down.

A poorly and sometimes strangely written story about a girl who gets stranded on a desert island. If I got stranded on a desert island, I certainly wouldn‘t want this book with me. It‘s one star for “The Island”.

My full review is up on my blog for those of you who want to read more! 📚

I‘m not a fan of ambiguous endings so this wasn‘t really for me. But the writing was good and was quite a page turner.

This one should have been a quick read but did some reason I took my time. It was a quirky and unique narrative that kept me turning the page to find out what would happen. Recommend to that teen you know that wants to read everything. I loved Virgil❤

@EllieDottie You are absolutely right! Idaho is a frozen wasteland right now. Your tropical island themed package made me so, so happy. (I am a sucker for themes) I love everything and I can't wait to slip away into tropical paradise! Thank you a million times over! And thank you @BookishMarginalia you are making dreams come true. 💌

EllieDottie Yay!! I'm so glad you liked everything!! 3y

Cameo wanted to be included in #24in48 too! This was my second read and I really enjoyed it! It switches between Fran trying to survive after her plane crashes on a desert island, and the terrible thing she did to get herself on the plane in the first place. It takes a little suspension of disbelief - 16 year old who's never camped on a desert island - but I loved the writing and overall a great pick 🤓

I've been offline and away from home for a few days, and how I missed Litsy and all of you! Had a bunch of books waiting for me at the library when I returned. #libraryhaul

I LOVE THIS BOOK! Best YA I've read in ages. Raw and real and just escapist enough.
